Yeah, I hope Vivek, the rest of the ownership group and Malone knew the level of Maloofery that has gone on in Sac for way too long. We really need to rid ourselves of the Maloof culture. That's why I really wanna get rid of JT. Get that era of player out of here, just for new beginnings.
DMC really needs to shut the f**k up and step up. Seriously. If you are the best center in the NBA, your team has to have a better record. Does he really suck that bad on defense? How can we have the best center in the NBA and suck so badly? He needs to step up on everything else besides offense. Now, honestly, I'm glad he didn't make the all star team. So he can learn. You guys might get pissed about that. But that hoe s**t he pulled against Houston has gone on for WAY too long. He needs to stop acting like a victim.
Malone could take charge and tell both DMC and JT that if they start running their mouths instead of playing, they're gonna be sitting next to him--an then back it up. Both those guys spend way too much time and energy complaining, frequently about phantom fouls and such.
Cousins really hurt himself and his image in the Houston game, undoing a season's worth of effort to prove himself a team leader. He doesn't seem to understand it, and the only remedy, I believe, is for him to go completely silent during games. Don't talk to the refs at all about anything. Just play, and let the coach deal with the refs.
